## Module content and teaching

###### Principal aims

This module provides an opportunity to learn the basic mathematics of probability including Markov chains (processes) and percolation theory with its numerous applications (random growth models (sand-pile models), Markov decision processes, communication networks, operations research).

###### Other essential notes

Prerequisites: As a prerequisite module students should have done MA359 Measure Theory. [as ST111 Probability A is a core module there are no further compulsory prerequisites]. However, it is recommended that students have attended ST213 Mathematics of Random Events. Some basic knowledge of module MA3G7 Functional Analysis I may be useful as well.
